Optimizing radiation use during fluoroscopic procedures is a key aspect of adding value to these procedures. The multidisciplinary panel acknowledged that patients are and will remain the key stakeholders in the improvement process. The panel recommended development of a multidisciplinary registry that will continually capture and analyze data from fluoroscopic procedures in an attempt to improve the safety of these procedures while maintaining their benefit. Although the SIR Foundation is well positioned to initiate this effort, long-term support will require working with a variety of patient advocacy groups and federal agencies.
